    I like the ad very much. Perry too often comes off as crabby and in a bad mood but this ad has him smiling, speeding up his speaking delivery, and looking very presidential. For a 30 second ad that is not an attack but what he will do it works.

    Nice job, Rick.

    I don’t think it’s that bad but it isn’t going to help resurrect his campaign. The only question is does Perry duck out of the race before or after Bachmann?

    Given the elitist attitude of Rob, GG, and dw, obviously they are more interested in the how the food is presented, not how it tastes. Us uneducated masses would rather have a good taste than the Waterford Crystal display with no substance. But Alaina, Texas is not the only state where drilling is a major part of the economy, or could be without all the regulations and tree huggers.

      The problem is it doesn’t taste good, look good, smell good or feel good. If that makes me an elitist then so be it.

      Read my comment again, Gil. I think you actually agreed with me in your comment. The ad has no substance, and anyone who takes time to educate themselves on the candidates and their platform would see the different in presentation and taste, to use your analogy.
      FWIW, I did not intend to infer that uneducated mean someone without education or a college degree. It means someone who does not educate themselves on the candidates other than through the feel good commercials.
      Sorry I was not more clear on that point.

    I don’t think it’s bad, but I don’t think it’s particularly good.
    If I were unemployed, my thought would be… Great. More jobs. I’m all for that, but I don’t want to work for oil, gas or coal companies. Is he going to do anything to create jobs in other industries?

    • Alaina Segovia

      It’s a great ad to run in Texas… just don’t think it plays that well for the rest of the country.

    Video and audio is not synced. If he can’t get that right in an ad, how can he be POTUS? Yeah, that’s about as silly as some of the arguments about commercials from Paul and Cain.
    Seriously, I think the commercial is a good one, for the uneducated masses. Those who don’t look behind the nice commercial to find out his real track record in that area will be impressed with the message and experience in creating jobs. A lot of people are looking for that right now.

    I think it’s a good ad, and I do NOT support Perry.

  • Rob

    Eh, that’s a bad ad.

    First, for the amount of money his campaign has the production is just terrible. Looks like something I could have whipped up in an hour.

    Secondly, Perry’s way of speaking and the “countries that hate America” crap just evokes GWB so much that I can’t take him seriously. Honestly almost feels like an SNL parody.

  • The Gallant Gallstone

    I agree with Rob on the whole production thing.

    Given Perry’s complete and enthusiastic submission to the ultra-wealthy, you’d think he’d have the money to come up with something more polished.
